So claims the headline from the Post-Gazette: Mayor poised to name new department heads.
Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said yesterday that he is close to making decisions on the 11 department director and authority director posts and several other administration jobs that are either held by people who submitted resignation letters, or vacant.
The mayor has a press conference scheduled for 11 a.m. today, but the administration would not confirm that the posts are the topic.
The Comet anticipates that Ravenstahl will lead off his personnel moves by appointing a new Equal Employment Opportunity Officer. (CORRECTION: The position has been filled.)
Recall this from the New Pgh Courier:
Though the directorships are in limbo, Ravenstahl said they would not be so for long. Acting Communications Director Joanna Doven said the search for the Assistant Director/EEO Officer is nearly complete.
"We have narrowed it down to two candidates and after their second interviews this week, we'll make our choice. So should be done in about two weeks," she said. "It's been a very rigorous process and we've interviewed a lot of people so we excited about that."
The 10 directorship positions will not be filled until the EEO officer is in place.
That came out roughly eight weeks ago.
